5 out of 5

Good location close to Kings Cross station

Pros: Location, comfortable bed.
Cons: On site parking
Location: Close to kings cross station, so easy access to most of sydney through there. Lots of pubs and clubs within a few minutes walk.
Was in a twin room. The room was clean. Beds and blankets very comfortable for hostel standards. Didn't use the kitchen facilities, but it seemed reasonable. The staff gave tips on where to find free parking over the weekend (it however wasn't a big problem to find a spot).
